XFactor 2012: Ella Henderson gets dating tips from Tulisa!

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor star Ella Henderson has revealed she's been getting dating tips from mentor Tulisa!

The teenager is Tulisa's only remaining act left in the girls category - and the whole competition - following the exit of Jade Ellis and Lucy Spraggan in the last two weeks.

"Tulisa and I are so close. She’s really girly. It’s nice to have a female mentor," Ella said today. "I’m the only girl in the competition now. There’s so much testosterone around me! Thank goodness for Tulisa! Otherwise, would would there be for me to talk about make-up and fashion with?"

She continued: "Tulisa has a really soft side. She’s a strong woman but behind closed doors she’s really lovely. Tulisa acts like a sixteen-year-old girl around me. We giggle and gossip lots togther. She gives me loads of advice about boys. She has told me to play hard to get and make boys wait. Advice I'm keen to follow!"

Speaking to the official ITV1 X Factor website this evening, Ella added: "If I was looking to impress a boy, I’d wear something classy that comes in at the waist."

And she insisted: "I'm not seeing anyone at the moment. George Shelley and I are just good friends. Though, I can still appreciate how gorgeous he is!"

The X Factor continues with its live shows next weekend with a Best Of British theme.

Sunday's results show will feature performances from One Direction and Little Mix, as well as one more act being given the boot.
